Ray McGovern on Gov't Accountability

March 9, 2009

Many systemic challenges face the United States and the world, including a lack of accountability for American leaders for the crimes of the recent era, says former CIA analyst Ray McGovern.

In a March 8 speech in Kirkland, Washington, McGovern goes through these daunting problems from global warming to the loss of a "free media" in terms of keeping the American people adequately informed, but concentrates on how the Bush administration wantonly violated international law.

(The story summary continues below.)

McGovern compares the American tolerance of Bush's crimes with the historical failure of the German people to stand up to the Nazis as Hitler's forces began to trample on the rights of the German people.

"On Jan. 20 of this year, we got rid of the Nazis," McGovern said. "The only question now is whether we have the courage to hold them accountable."

Ray McGovern was an Army Intelligence Officer and CIA analyst for almost 30 years and is co-founder of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS).
